Great movie and tv podcast

Very knowledgeable, enjoyable, and easy to listen to. This definitely scratches my itch for tv and movie news

Excellent Film News Source

One of my main “go to” podcasts right now. I enjoy listening to Peter and the gang every day talking about film and tv news. Feel like I’ve gotten to know them and I enjoy their personalities.

Also enjoy that they talk about random things like theme parks and junk food!

Highly recommend.

Great Movie/TV Podcast

I really appreciate the variety of this podcast. There are six or so contributors with varying tastes and opinions. You find yourself drawn towards certain hosts with similar tastes, but all the hosts offer great reviews and insight. There is a “water cooler” episode every week or so with suggestions for new things to watch, or even older things to watch that you may have missed. My favorite episodes are the deep dives (mainly of Disney properties or types like HBO Watchmen), which also include some fun fan theorizing along the way.
